Renesas RL78 Microcontrollers for Embedded Systems

Renesas Electronics introduced the RL78 microcontroller (MCU) family. The RL78 microcontrollers integrate features from both the R8C and the 78K (78K0, 78K0R) families. The Renesas MCUs are ideal for battery-operated devices and household applications. Samples of the RL78 will be available in Q1. Mass production is scheduled for July 2011. The RL78/G12 Group MCUs with 2 KB of flash memory and 256 bytes (B) of RAM in a 20-pin shrink small-outline package (SSOP) will be priced at $0.45 per unit in 10,000-piece lots, and the RL78/G13 Group MCUs with 64 KB of flash memory and 4 KB of RAM in a 64-pin, low-profile quad flat package (LQFP) will be priced at $1.00 per unit in 10,000-piece lots.
